Big events in 2022

New Japan Pro-Wrestling revealed their schedule for the first half of 2022 today during day two of Wrestle Kingdom 16.

In a major announcement, Wrestling Dontaku will return to the Fukuoka Dome - now named the PayPay Dome - for the first time since 2001 on Sunday, May 1. The major event was held at the Fukuoka Dome from 1993 until 2001 but has taken place at the smaller Fukuoka Kokusai Center since it was revived in 2009. 

NJPW also announced their next major events as part of the New Year's Golden Series will take place on Friday, February 11 and Sunday, February 13 before more major New Year's Golden Series shows on February 19 and February 20. 

Following the series, NJPW will hold their 50th Anniversary Show at the Nippon Budokan on Tuesday, March 1 before the New Japan Cup gets underway on March 2 at the same venue. 

New Japan Cup matches will then take place throughout March until the final two days on March 26 and March 27 from Osaka Jo-Hall. 

NJPW also announced a Sumo Hall date for Saturday, April 9 and another event from Osaka Jo-Hall on Sunday, June 12. Those events have yet to be named, though.
